AudioFile Magazine has announced Life Between the Tides, narrated by Leighton Pugh, as an Earphones Award Winner for Best Audiobook 2022. See what the judges had to say:

English actor Leighton Pugh’s engaging midrange voice, which is both crisp and warm, is the perfect accompaniment to Adam Nicolson’s consideration of life in those intertidal rock pools particularly beloved by children—and grown-ups like Nicolson, an award-winning author, naturalist, and historian. Audibly curious and awed, Pugh’s attentive pacing and sheer friendliness channel Nicolson’s delight in the tidal universes where “disturbed creatures jump away as chaotically as bubbles in champagne” and the hormones of dominant female sand hoppers inhibit the development of their rivals’ ovaries. Yeah, whoa. Full of such astonishing information, this tender ode to nature also offers lessons on existence learned from the existences studied by Nicolson, including, “Life is tidal, full of loss and arrival, a thing that makes and ebbs.” A.C.S.
